Palm oil may fall towards 2,125 ringgit

-A +A

SINGAPORE (Oct 13): Palm oil may break a support at 2,163 ringgit per tonne and fall more towards the next support at 2,125 ringgit, as a correction from the Oct. 1 high of 2,223 ringgit has not completed.

The correction consists of three waves, with the current third wave labelled c likely to approach the trough of the first wave, the wave a, at 2,137 ringgit. A Fibonacci projection analysis on the target of the preceding wave (c) reveals a support at 2,163 ringgit, the 38.2 percent level, which temporarily holds the wave c from falling towards 2,125 ringgit, the 23.6 percent level.

Strategically, the target at 2,125 ringgit will be confirmed when the support at 2,163 ringgit is broken.
